TWO girls raised more than £800 for charity after their grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Tilly Conant, eight, and Amelia Hubbard, 11, handed over a cheque for £871.45 at a Cancer Research Lunch Club meeting at Greetham Valley Golf, Hotel and Conference Centre.

The girls, pupils at St Mary and St John Primary School in North Luffenham, held a coffee morning where they sold cakes and Christmas cards, held a raffle and had a name the duck competition.

Their friend Lucy also ran a toy stall.

They asked family, friends and villagers from Lyndon, where they live, to bake cakes and donate raffle prizes and were astounded at the support they received.

Tilly said: “We had such an amazing morning with about 70 people turning up.”
